This is the first time I've done a combined scenery and miniatures job.
Just like con exhibitors, they sell from a tiny little square that was haphazardly put together. Actually, I wish I had a post-apocalyptic shanty to sell from- I bet it would look pretty cool.
The textures were a lot of fun to work with, and Pardoulon's resin (sold through Lead Adventure, too) was very nice, if a touch thicker than I expected. It actually reminded me a lot of working with the old Armorcast terrain I used to buy back when I was just getting started. It turned out to be a bit more colorful than I intended, and I decided to attach the curtain with a rare earth magnet to be removable, because it looked too good on to not keep, but would also restrict the space a lot if it were permanent.
For those interested, the shanty actually comes with 3 long walls, a short one, and the curtain, which are all reversible with different textures- you could easily get a few and keep them looking unique for a little town, especially with different colors breaking up the surfaces.
The shanty also came with a short table (like cons) and a fair amount of post apocalyptic weaponry and oil drums (not like cons I've been to). They're very well suited as both wares and obstructions.
Since I happened to have a desert board I've been working on, this seemed like a good opportunity to set up a little scene.
(Also, no, that wasn't the most memorable Fallout 3 quote, but gimme a break, I've only played it through around 1 time)
